I should begin this post by saying that we are all fine here in Newport. The tsunami wasn't an issue in this harbor, although preparations were made anyway.
Thanks to those of you who called or wrote out of concern.
I was in Texas at the time, so my appreciation goes out to my Newport staff for taking care of things just in case.
As we watch the videos coming out of Japan, our hearts go out to all those affected.
The recent events in Japan have reminded me of how much I take for granted each and every day.
Here at the Gondola Blog, our thoughts and prayers are with those in Japan and other areas affected by the tsunami.
